      Add this to the list of spells that have been inexplicably nerfed down to two turns from the tabletop's ten. Divine Favor had the exact same thing happen. Is this intentional, and just Larian being weirdos, or was it an oversight or something?

      Just picking random, innocuous spells from the spell list and giving them 1/5 the duration is absolutely bizarre.

        Does 'drop everything' actually mean everything? Weapons, armor, items?
        It would be very disappointing if it doesn't actually mean dropping everything.

          Love this spell to bits. Super useful for a passive run where you want NPC weapons without knocking them out. Combo it with Disguise Self, and the Run Spell, and you are the ultimate "Look bro! You dropped it! Finders keepers!" build.

            The other anon was right, this spell description is very misleading. The description says specifically that the enemy CANNOT move, and yet they actually can, this means that they can simply just look away. (i checked a 5e site and it says there that the creature must move away from the caster, so I guess that's why). I hope someone adds that in the note section here.

              Can someone update like all of these spells with
              - area and shape of effect
              - targeting rules
              - upscaling

              i'd do some of them myself but i'm not sure where to find the information. That's why I'm here! I _think_ this is a cone and doesn't upscale?

                this doesn't actually stop enemies from moving like the description says. they run away and have the "fearful" debuff

                  Why the hell did you take this from necromancy...so many stupid changes in this game with godawful descriptions.
